In any case, each user has the following responsibilities:
• log off or exit the site when you are not using it;
• prevent other people from using the site with the user's account;
• protect your account from unauthorized access to the site;
• not to provide third parties with the password and other access information;
• pay attention to the use of systems on the Internet, always maintaining a good level of security by protecting all data relating to the account.
It should be noted that the internet is not a safe environment and that, therefore, despite the measures adopted and the attention in the selection of the parties with whom we collaborate, it may happen that other subjects intercept or illegally access transmissions or private data.

Should this happen, users are asked to be very careful, as it is highly probable that this message comes from third parties unrelated to us who intend to obtain certain information in a completely illicit way. The phenomenon in question is called "phishing" or "spoofing". In the event that the user should receive messages of this type, please contact us.
